    nrc claim canada need a UAV who are capable to fly over 30+ hours and can carried missiles, camera and extra fuel (Heron & Altair can doing that)

    HERON
    Maximum Speed : 207 km/h
    Maximum Range : 3,300 km
    Endurance: 40 h
    ALTAIR
    Maximum speed : 400 km/h
    Maximum Range : 5926 km
    Endurance: 16-28 h

    Canada need fast and long range and long endurance fly one of reason why ALTAIR and HERON are selected for MALE.

    But the HERON is only a lease for 2 years (2009-2011) after that canada need anyway a MALE and HALE...and right now nobody can said if the HERON going to be a lease to buy or they only use the ALTAIR right now they're satisfied about the ALTAIR capacity.

    And what's this about "they" sunk? HMC Ships Windsor, Victoria and Corner Brook are in Canada.


    Incidents On October 30, 2005, Windsor suffered a minor electrical transformer meltdown while submerged off the Nova Scotia coast.

    Incidents On October 5, Chicoutimi electrical fire

    Incidents In 2002, a dent was discovered in Victoria's hull that limited its diving depth to 75% of normal. The dent was not successfully repaired until the end of 2007


    I guess is only the Corner Brook who still floating....the rest is on reparation or modernization like the new Sonar for patrol in Artic...And isn't the Victoria-class who happened in fact British had accident too before in 1990-1994

    Situation en 2008 Achetés usagés pour 750 millions de dollars canadiens, les quatre sous-marins de classe Victoria ne valent plus en 2008 que 343 millions de dollar, selon un inventaire des actifs des forces armées canadiennes réalisé par le chef du Service d'examen de la Défense nationale. En 2007, le seul sous-marin qui a navigué est le NCSM Corner Brook, comptant 98 jours en mer. Le NCSM Victoria est en réparation depuis 2005, le NCSM Chicoutimi est en cale sèche depuis un incendie à son bord en 2004 et le NCSM Windsor a été en cale sèche toute l'année 2007 et devrait faire l'objet d'essais en mer d'ici la fin de 2008.
    They said here the HMCS Corner Brook have only 98 day of patrol in 2007. HMCS Victoria is on reparation since 2005, HMCS Chicoutimi is on Drydock since 2004 , the HMCS Windsor are in Drydock all years 2007 and will rejoint the water in only end of 2008. In 1998 when canada lease to buy the British Submarine that was evaluated at 750 Million dollar, in 2008 the submarines are aproximatly 343 Million dollar ,and only one can dive and has only 98 day of patrol.

    Anyway this is my choice to said the submarines is a waste of money and if you said no why since 2004 our submarine is only in reparation...

    Yes, everyone now knows it was probably a bad idea to buy them. But regardless no submarine has sunk, none, all you have proved is that they have suffered damage electrically or structurally.

    Like i said i don't speak in english and what i want to say, is the Submarines who canada lease to buy from British Empire , don't work and one "sunk" in irland after water enter on the submarines and burned the Chicoutimi and since 4 years now the Chicoutimi is on the Drydock 4 years did you imagine that...only one submarine work and i read a information about the modernisation of the submarine between 2010-2012 so in 10 years now only one submarine still working and the rest in Drydock for reparation of inspection.

    That cost more money to repair now than lease to buy new one or built our own submarines. (We have the capacity to built our own sub)

    I'm sure we could. But based on the quality of our shipyards I can't see that happening. This is based on BC Ferries buying a ship from Germany and the sinking of a newly-built ferry that sunk just after its maiden voyage. Anyone know about the sea worthiness of the Aussie Colins Class seeing how they are to be replaced soon. (We take them the moment they retire them).

    P.S: What's wrong with CASR? (apart from the lack of updates and thier DND 101 covering the "interesting" articles on....trailers.)

    [SIZE=2]Canadian military creating amphibious force

    [/SIZE]

    Last Updated: Wednesday, March 7, 2007 | 12:02 AM ET

    CBC News

    The Canadian military is about to create a special forces unit unlike anything it has had before, CBC News has learned.
    The force, which will include 800 soldiers, sailors and air force personnel, will be mainly focused on maritime operations, but will also focus on areas such as counter-terrorism, sources said.
    The force will be equipped with helicopters, submarines and possibly a leased amphibious assault ship — a vessel that can bring ashore and support ground troops.
    "Think of it as something like a mini United States Marine Corps," the CBC's Rob Gordon reported Tuesday from New Glasgow, N.S.
    The marines, with about 200,000 troops, is a branch of the U.S. military that operates on land, sea and in the air.
    Canada has studied the possibility of having a special force for a year, and sources told Gordon the military is now ready to move ahead with plans. No details were available about when the force will be operational.
    The force will be able to work within Canada, assisting with coastal disasters where civilians are at risk.
    The force will also be able to assist the Canadian military in its operations around the world. The military hopes the force will increase its global presence, Gordon reported.
    Corrections and Clarifications


    • The U.S. Marine Corps is a branch of the U.S. military, not a branch of the U.S. Navy as originally reported. June 5, 2007|3:25 p.m. ET

    Maybe you have right but Irving designed the City-Class(FFH), and is considered one of the most powerful in the world, and right now they are in phase of modernization Frigate Life Extension (FELEX), imagine submarines.

    What wrong with CASR , because i said in army.ca canada should buy AT-6B for canadian forces , not only a lease AT-6 from Bombardier, i said why canada don't lease to buy AT-6 and modernised for AT-6B from Beechcraft (raytheon) this guy laugh and said i don't based my search straight but that was an opinion after red the AT-6B capacity , because canada can't send CF-18 in Afghanistan...i said why not a AT-6B....and well this is for why he said b/s about CASR.

    Oh and i forget, about the C-130J-30 , i said is a very bad idea to buy this aircraft because some American try to stop the production of C-130j just because this aircraft cost lot of money for small capacity comparate older version like E ,and conservator purchases 16x C-130j-30 for 2009 when Germany/France build a better,faster aircraft called Airbus [FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif][SIZE=-1]A400M. [FONT=Arial][SIZE=3]Again only a opinion about expensive C-130J-30 , since 40 years canada don't have strategic airlift like C-17 and now we purschashe a very expensive hercule when Airbus A400M are better in papers (not yet ready)[/SIZE][/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT]

    The CH-148 Cyclone will replace the CH-124 Sea King as Canada’s main ship-borne maritime helicopter. This state-of-the-art aircraft will fill the Canadian Forces’ operational demands well into the 21st century.
    The Cyclone will conduct Surface and Subsurface Surveillance and Control, utility and search and rescue missions. It will also provide tactical transport for national and international security efforts. This twin-engine helicopter is compatible with the latest high-tech naval frigates and includes several new safety features. Its aluminum and composite airframe is built with lightning-strike and high-intensity radio frequency pulse protection. The aircraft also incorporates flaw tolerance and engine burst containment.
    The Cyclone has a day-and-night flight capability, and can fly in most weather conditions in temperatures ranging from -51°C to +49°C. With a maximum cruise speed of 250 km/h, the CH-148 is approximately 10% faster than a Sea King. The Cyclone can also fly 450 km without refuelling.
    In Nov 2004, Sikorsky was awarded two separate, yet interrelated contracts. The first contract is for the delivery of 28 fully integrated maritime helicopter, a simulation and training suite, integrated logistic support and ship modifications. The second contract is for the 20-year in-service support of the helicopters. Delivery of the first helicopter was anticipated in Jan 2009.
    The government has recently been informed by the prime contractor of a delay in the planned delivery date for the CH148 Cyclone helicopter. Government representatives are currently conducting a detailed review of all aspects of the contractor's schedule to determine how to minimize the impact of these delays and to ensure that they will not affect the key performance and airworthiness requirements of the Canadian Forces.
    The Maritime Helicopter Project has faced its share of challenges, but the Government of Canada and the Department of National Defence are confident and determined that it will result in an unrivaled helicopter at the forefront of modern technology.
